If Elayne thought that her adventures were over with the slaying of the dragon queen… was she ever wrong! Because when she and Leo came back from Goloth to New York through the tapestries, Tiamat’s three daughters hitched a ride.
Elayne had learned that dragons could shapeshift. Take on the form of other beasts. Even become human for a while. So when she sees a news report of a series of murders in California and the only clue is a dragon scale found at the scene, she knows what is happening: Tiamat’s daughters are rousing sleeping dragons from a thousand year sleep to be their mates… and providing them with a grisly wake up breakfast in bed!
Elayne feels responsible – she let the killers back into this world. But when she and Leo try to hunt down their enemy, they soon realize that too many have awakened, that they have become too powerful. Which is when Leo recalls an ancient myth of Goloth – that the Dwarves of Transagor could forge amazing weapons from Dragonstone – and that only with these will they be able to slay the dragons of Earth.
Back they go to Goloth. The friends are reunited – Scarab, Huy, Tempest the Unicorn – and a new quest formed: to journey to Transagor and find the Dragonstone they need. Only trouble is… the Dwarves have disappeared.
Join Elayne and her comrades as she confronts killer dragons in human form in the final chapter of the Tapestry Trilogy…
The Land of the Fabulous Beast is, in a word, fabulous, a place where all the creatures dreamed up by various cultures are portrayed in all their glory… Hand this to readers who like their heroines sassy and their settings vividly imagined.

The Hunt of the Unicorn is one of the best fantasy books for young adult readers to be written in the last few years. It has a good story with the fast plot typical of an adventure. By weaving historical elements into the modern world, the author has created a parallel world of wondrous beasts such as the types that would be found in a medieval bestiary.

An interesting hybrid of time travel fantasy and myth, [The Hunt of the Dragon] is a unique riff on the more traditional use of classical myths and legends in YA fiction. . . . A nice choice for fans who’ve outgrown Rick Riordan and C.S. Lewis.
